The UK Embassy in Port of Spain has partnered with Women-Owned Media and Education Network (W.O.M.E.N) for the execution of the “GrowSmart: Empowering Rural Women In Sustainable Agriculture Practices“. This is an initiative aimed at educating and training women farmers and aspiring agribusiness entrepreneurs with the knowledge, skills, and resources needed to implement sustainable and innovative agricultural practices to increase their livelihood.
W.O.M.E.N’s mission is to create a platform for women that caters to multi-issues by employing a multi-strategy approach through knowledge and skill-based development, aid programs, counselling, and other services. We want to enable them to have active access to enterprises and employment for self-reliance and thus become more economically sustainable for personal fulfilment.
